    A grim, gorgeous milieu of societal depth and cunning design. That its mechanics slot so naturally into its environment, giving players the freedom and choice to explore, influence and infiltrate means that Dishonored 2 represents the very best gaming has to offer.

    What a sequel should be: bigger, more ambitious, but with a solid grasp on what the original was and wanted to be. A true example of how to design a world and an infiltration game.

    Dishonored 2 is a pleasure to play… the ability to switch between mystical abilities, firearms or your trusty retractable blade (apparently some people don’t appreciate a folding blade) increases the variety of the game and leads to some very interesting interactions.

    Dishonored 2 is the example of a perfect sequel, a game which improves several flaws of the first title bringing to life a memorable experience. Arkane Studios managed to create a masterpiece, especially for whoever loves the stealth genre.

    As a story, it may well be lacking, but as a collection of expertly crafted play spaces where design and mechanics reinforce and respond to your agency in myriad delightful and engaging ways, Dishonored 2 is pure magic.

    Dishonored 2 is a complex game with a simplistic first-person action wrapper. It offers up a variety of different gameplay options to run through the game with, while presenting a bigger world for you to stretch those options out in. It’s a great follow-up to the first game and certainly improves on its ideals.

    Feels like a tiresome retread – enjoyable enough when it sticks to the old script, but frustrating in its disappointment when it does attempt anything new. With a rushed story, colorless characters, and total misuse of a whole new playable character, the best I can say is that I didn’t hate it. I didn’t particularly like it, but I didn’t hate it. Dishonored deserves more than that.

If you enjoy immersive-sim style games that encourage creativity in how you tackle the many varied environments, this is the game for you. The game systems are deep and allow for a vast amount of customization, though they can be exploited in ways that make the game too easy. If, however, you avoid overpowering yourself and focus on being creative in your approach to enemy encounters and mission objectives, then you will absolutely enjoy your time with Dishonored 2.

Just played it through. Now when I have the patience to try different kind of approaches it feels great. It's not a game to just play fastly through. You have to enjoy and play in a way that makes you comfortable. It's easy to complete the game without really putting effort to it, but when you do put effort and play it without hesitation, it's one of the best stealth games ever made (only mgs V goes past it).

    Beaten on Hard Low Chaos Run as Emily.

    This game is better than the first. The world feels alive and there's an impressive amount of choice and novelty in each level. It does have a bit of a steep learning curve and the load times are a bit long, but the actual moment-to-moment gameplay, when you get into the groove of it, is awesome. A must play for anyone who enjoys single player narrative games.

As a massive fan of the first game I was so hyped for this one being to play as Emily and Corvo HECK YES. But it isn't remotely memorable as the first one. You really don't feel for it like you did in the first game being falsely accused of killed your lover. Still fun and great abilities though. Expand
